Behold, happy [is] the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:
Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected [us], and we gave [them] reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
For they verily for a few days chastened [us] after their own pleasure; but he for [our] profit, that [we] might be partakers of his holiness.
Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
1 Peter 4:13
But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1 Peter 4:12
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
1 Peter 1:6
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
2 Timothy 4:5
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
2 Timothy 2:3
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
The LORD'S voice crieth unto the city, and [the man of] wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.
Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
Ye that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still: remember the LORD afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?
My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne [chastisement], I will not offend [any more]:
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven.
And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
1 Thessalonians 3:3
That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, [therewith] to be content.
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
In your patience possess ye your souls.
1 Peter 4:19
Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls [to him] in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
